Short CV

Panagiota Fatourou is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Crete and an affiliated faculty member of the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH). Prior to joining the University of Crete and FORTH ICS, she was a full-time faculty member at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Ioannina. The academic years 2000 and 2001, she was a postdoc at Max-Planck Institut fur Informatik, Saarbrucken, Germany, and at the Computer Science Department of the University of Toronto, Canada. She got a degree in Computer Science from the University of Crete, and a PhD degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Patras.

Her research interests focus on the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures, lower bounds and impossibility results in distributed and parallel computing, decentralized data structures, concurrent objects, synchronization protocols, communication protocols, internet protocols, peer-to-peer computing, parallel programming languages, multithreaded computing, scheduling and load balancing. P. Fatourou has published her research results in the most prestigious conferences (ACM STOC, ACM PODC, ACM SPAA) and journals (J. of the ACM, SIAM J. on Computing) of her field. She has participated in several projects funded by the EU and she is currently coordinating an EC-funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network, called TransForm. She has repeatedly served as a member of the PC of the most well-known conferences in her field and she is the editor of the Distributed Computing Column of the Bulletin of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science
